At booth 2315, NSCA visitors can check out Sennheiser’s Set 810 Personal TV Listening System, a personal-assistive listening environment for people who want to listen to the television or to music wirelessly, as well as for seniors and the hard of hearing.

The easy-to-install, easy-to-use system comprises an infrared transmitter, switchable between stereo and mono operation, and a wireless stethoset listening device with a large, easy-to-use volume control for level adjustments. The Set 810’s ergonomic, adjustable ear bows ensure a perfect fit, while the stethoset's compression drivers attenuate loud programming such as commercials, and boosts soft passages for a more even audio level and better speech intelligibility. The system automatically turns on and off, so there's no dial to manipulate and users don’t have to remember to turn it off.

In operation, the transmitter is connected to the audio output socket of any television or audio source; the system features switchable stereo or mono operation for total integration with any sound source. The Set 810 additionally includes as standard a Sennheiser MKE800-TV external microphone for use where an audio output socket is not available.

The transmitter incorporates a charging cradle and a separate compartment for a spare battery, so two batteries can be charged simultaneously. The charging cradle includes a Quick-Charge feature so that the receiver battery is ready for use in three hours.

Sennheiser's Denise Lavoie, business manager of audiology, said, "During initial testing, users consistently tell us how much the Set 810 Personal Listening System has improved their quality of life. Right now is the perfect time to install a system, as the winter months have a way of keeping people indoors watching more television. With 28 million Americans experiencing some degree of hearing loss, everyone knows someone—a family member or perhaps a neighbor—who could benefit from this system."

Note: Infrared systems are not designed for use with plasma television screens.
